- DISABILITY CLAIM FAQ
Yao syndrome (“Yaos”) is an autoinflammatory syndrome involving irregularly occurring episodes that can last for several days, of fever and abnormal inflammation affecting many parts of the body, particularly the skin, joints, and gastrointestinal system. The joint pain, swelling and inflammation is similar to arthritis, and frequently happens in the legs, ankles and feet.
We represent a 41 year old Director at a Health Care facility from Mineola with Yaos. Based upon his treatment records, we obtained a report from the claimant’s rheumatologist, Qingping Yao, which explained why he believed the claimant was incapable of working on a full time basis. Dr. Yao is the Chief of the Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology, and Director of the Center of Autoinflammatory Diseases at SBUH. It was Dr. Yao who identified Yaos when he was a senior rheumatologist at the Cleveland Clinic.
Not surprisingly, the claimant was approved for disability benefits without the need for a hearing. But our client had originally applied for Social Security Disability benefits on her own, and was denied. She retained our services after she was denied, and she is very happy that she did so.
